Why no AMD servers? - Page 2

post #11 of 51
I never thought of that.

I mostly always see Intel Xeon. I never see AMD.

When looking at sales brochures, you always see Xeon, not Opteron.

There was a time when you'd see AMD socket 940 opty's every where, but then AMD really took a nose dive. Now days they have an estimated 5-7% of the server market. (5.2% in that source...highest I've seen in recent days is 7%). Xeons are just that good. I honestly wouldn't be surprised to find out that AMD themselves were even using a few Xeons on their own networks.

i got a question here for those that have been benchmarking fx-8150 in the past quarter?does a lot of benchmark test related to the way fx work, need external server?if so! this might be an issue ,cause like poster here mention, the amd server are so rare, the chance of hitting an intel server trying to test a fx is almost 100 %

Please use proper grammar and punctuation because it is unclear what you are asking.

Same here we are all Intel servers and our network manager just laughed when i mentioned an AMD server (opteron) i just took that as for our workload AMD is just a joke and nothing i said would change his mind- even when presented with the multi threaded performance offered by BD. It seems our company/ manager is not prepared to even consider AMD as a serious server platform.

I purchase a few servers a year, and to be honest, I'd rather save the money elsewhere than go with an AMD-based server. They may be just as good as their Xeon-based counterparts, but I'm not spending 6k just to find out I should have spent 7k. The amount of savings just isn't enough to bridge the gap in replacement cost if it underperforms or otherwise isn't suited to the task.

Probably not a match for recent x86 CPUs, but then again they were probably purchased years ago, or purchased to run software that wasn't easily ported.

The main cost in our IT department that is taken into consideration when buying is the cost of running and that and that only is why we turned BD down. It preformed very well with huge databases but the running costs were just too high.

Has BD been certified by any server OEM yet?
